For Travelling Abroad
OptiBac Probiotics 'For travelling abroad' is especially for those travelling to foreign environments such as India, Egypt and Mexico. It contains four high quality and well-researched strains of live cultures, including Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Saccharomyces boulardii, which are proven to survive to reach the gut alive. Suggested for daily use during travels and a few days prior, each capsule provides 5 billion live microorganisms guaranteed until end of expiry. This supplement has been shown to survive at higher temperatures and in more humid climates than that of the UK, making it a suitable travel companion. OptiBac Probiotics 'For travelling abroad' is suitable for vegetarians, and is also gluten free.
Unlike many products containing live cultures, this supplement does not require refrigeration. All OptiBac Probiotics strains are thoroughly researched and documented, so you can be confident you're getting a high quality supplement that's right for you.
Diet & Nutrition
At OptiBac Probiotics, the customer's health comes first, and the reason that they offer supplements in capsules or sachets is that they strongly believe this is the best method by which to take live cultures. Many people associate live cultures with yoghurt drinks, which can contain very well-researched strains. But, they are often extremely high in sugar or artificial sweeteners like aspartame; a chemical thought to have toxic effects on the body. The OptiBac Probiotics range is free from unnecessary additives, and boasts some of the most researched strains in the world. What's more, the range offers different types of live cultures supplements to meet individual needs, rather than taking a 'one size fits all' approach.
Corporate & Social Responsibility
OptiBac Probiotics takes their responsibility to be transparent to customers very seriously, and as such have a policy to ensure full disclosure of all of the ingredients used in each product. This way, retailers and consumers can make informed decisions when purchasing products according to their personal needs.
Charitable Organisations & Partnerships
OptiBac Probiotics strives to support both the local community and those that are further afield. Wren Laboratories (the company behind the OptiBac Probiotics brand) gives an annual donation to Shine Charity, the association for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus. Since 2011, the company has also donated 1% of their yearly turnover to the Aga Khan University Hospital Patient Welfare Programme in Kenya. In 2014, OptiBac Probiotics established a partnership with Womankind Worldwide, the international women’s rights charity, with donations made for every pack of OptiBac Probiotics 'For women' sold. Finally, a value that is close to their hearts is to deliver quality and value to the ever-growing live cultures industry, which, while still relatively young, is one that they are very proud to be a part of.
